It also features recording capabilities that will be appreciated by today’s new generation of audio content creators, including podcasters and budding YouTube musicians, housing a built-in dual array microphone that records clear audio, and all recorded audio is further enhanced and cleaned up via Creative’s CrystalVoice technologies. Connecting to laptops, PCs, and Macs via a simple USB cable, the device also offers conveniently accessible controls and input options.
